by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog – Shooters, the Tower of Babel, and Gun Control
Editor’s note: I’m not surprised that even in the face of horrific tragedy that people like Wilson want to allow everyone things like automatic weapons. I’m merely surprised that he is citing that dead horse of communism to justify it. While there is no simple solution to gun violence in America, because not only does it delve into 2nd amendment rights, it also involves the problems of mental illness and people feeling isolated and powerless. Is it really necessary to say all types of weapons are legal because communism? Would Jesus approve of Wilson’s pals having AK-47s?
To take one pertinent example, the communists, in the course of their vile career, murdered approximately 100 million people. Whenever unbelieving man builds a Tower of Babel, it is so that he may make him a name, and so that the top can reach into Heaven (Gen. 11:4). And you cannot aspire to reach Heaven that way without aspiring to the prerogatives of Heaven. One of those prerogatives is to determine who lives and who dies—whether we are talking about famines aimed at Ukrainians, forceps aimed at second trimester babies, or death panels aimed at cancer patients in compassionate single payer countries. So whenever collective man sets his heart to reign from “that hideous strength,” the final result will somehow be to station “shooters” all around the upper rim of it.
So gun control is not about gun control, strictly speaking. Gun control is people control. Gun control is not about the abolition of gun ownership. Gun control is about a rearrangement of the gun ownership—where the people below give them up, and the people above keep all of theirs. But when you have had countless indicators that the people above despise you, and harbor nothing but contempt for your way of life, you will not be eager for them to gain any more power. For a very recent example of the mask slipping, right after the shooting a vice-president with CBS (since fired) said: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”
